It was a nice hike which was extremely easy to do when compared to other hikes in Tahoe. Saw lots of dogs and my pup had fun. Sure made him tired.

Skunk Harbor is beautiful. I would have labeled this trail as easy with some moderate parts which is a slow grade back up to the trailhead. The weather was cool fall crisp and perfect with few people on the trail. If you have to park at the second lot and don't want to get run over by cars finding your way to the trailhead there is a winding path from that second lot that connects to the trail. Great for letting dogs leash free enjoy playing outside. The scene at water's edge was breathtakingly peaceful.

A stroll down from the highway to a nice bay and old abandoned home. Lots of people on boats off shore on the weekend.
